Action. First of a two-part film in which an assassin known as ‘The Bride’ (Uma Thurman) revives after a four-year coma and hunts down the members of her former gang (Vivica A. Fox, Lucy Liu) in retribution for their mistreatment of her.
- Use of the sexual expletive in a sexual context; scatological slang and profanity
- Frequent, bloody martial arts and sword combat—amputations, detailed wounds
- Attempted sexual assault—no detail
- Childhood trauma
- Homage to Hong Kong action films
- Conventions of the Action genre
Rated 18A for detailed genre violence, mitigated by serio-comic tone.
